Italian
Based on High Street, just one block from Chapel, Tipico is a new modern-Italian bistro.
Tipico reflects the new Italy, the Italy that’s now in Milan, the cool new vibe. Not the classic restaurant with Italian music playing and cloth on the tables. The flavours coming out of head chef Daniele Colombo’s kitchen will be relatively classic, but with some modern finesse added to the plating.
What you can expect to see alongside some classic pizzas are dishes like kingfish crudo, orange dressing and mint; battered sardines with polenta chips; or tagliatelle with spanner crab.
An Italian and Victorian centred wine list explores a variety of regions and wine makers alongside local craft beers and cocktails.

We had a table for 5 right in front of the window. We ordered 2 Cotoletta dishes served with pickled vegetables which was an absolutely amazing combination. We also had 2 Pizza's and 1 fish dish which were also good.
The staff were very friendly and efficient.

Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting Very Good food and a good night out with friends.

We've eaten there twice now and will definitely be back. Excellent service, great wines by the glass and exceptional food. The eggplant entree is off the charts! So is the beef cheeks mains, can't recommend it highly enough.

High quality food. Eggplant parma with bread a great starter. Pasta dishes a little small considering how expensive. Cabbage is beetroot salad super bitter. Beetroot and fetta very nice though. Recommend ordering a few pizzas to ensure everyone is full. Also recommend not booking at 6.30 as you may be asked to leave at 8.30.

Good homemade Italian food nothing fancy, fresh pasta and pizza
Salads were good but not specialty. I would add at least two more with more ingredients to round out menu.

Staff friendly and efficient. The food was very good and tasty but main course came out within ten minutes of ordering! This is too fast we had just arrived and hadn’t even settled in yet! Was it heated up? Did they want us out ASAP? It felt that way.
Noise level was almost unbearable as we could hardly hear each other! Overall it was good because of the food and service but I’m not sure I’ll go back because of above reasons.

A trendy warehouse style Italian restaurant with good food and service. Very noisy though and I wish they had decent bread instead of doughnut things which were far too sweet.

This restaurant deserved to be busier on a Friday lunchtime. The service was excellent with the Staff appearing to be of Italian heritage, which added to the ambiance. The food was delicious.

Tipico is my second home and has become the same for all the friends and colleagues I have brought there. Both the Directors and their teams alongside great chefs in the kitchen make it my go to place every time. We always have a brilliant time.

5 of us had dinner at Tipico and the restaurant was fully booked out. The atmosphere was a little loud and the lighting a bit dim, but the food and wine were great.

I especially enjoyed the pizzas and the entrees, the pasta itself was cooked perfectly but the sauces weren’t completely balanced.

I would recommended this as a place for celebration.

Food and service good as always. The wine list is somewhat limited and our usual choice was not available, which made is a little difficult at first.

Very good food, mostly authentic Italian, although the menu is a little limited. Very attentive service. Food prices are OK but the wine mark-ups are on the high side. Buzzy atmosphere, though because of the hard surfaces everywhere the noise level can be bothersome when the restaurant is full.

Great Italian restaurant. Great food, love the pasta with sardines, and the veal cotoletta. The pizza is also fantastic- look forward to coming back and just having a pizza and glass of wine at the very stylish terrazzo bar. Very good wine list- including Austrian and Italian. Exceptional service and lots of smiles.

Set menu for boozy brunch yet a table of two was served the same amount of food as our table of 3.
Wasn’t looking for anything off the bill but when I commented this to the manager he was very aggressive, saying ‘it was mistake! It was mistake!’ I was simply offering some feedback as a restaurant unless someone says something you don’t know. Poor response to the feedback, not enough food so would not recommend this restaurant.

We went to Tipico for the Abbuffato menu. We did enjoy ourselves. Food was lovely. Wine even better. But, for 4 people, we had food for 2 people. At $50 a head, we thought we would have a touch more food. Really, you are paying for the bottomless drinks and the food is a bonus.As I said, food was great but you need to reconsider that you are giving a table of 4 the same amount of food as a table for 2.

Food was lovely, big serves for entree’s & pizza dessert is huge, too big actually. Would be nice if there was a Champagne on offer by the glass.
Tables were too close together it wasn’t nice hearing other people’s conversations & also having a really loud person sitting right next to me spoilt the night.
